Sorry to chime in a little late on this post, but... I checked out Tri State Med Academy's LPN program in Cincinnati. It looked like a good school, and I was really hyped up on attending UNTIL the lady told me that they have no financial aid to offer students. You have to pay for the entire program out of pocket, either up front or in monthly installments. From my understanding, there aren't even any loans you can get to finance the education. She didn't tell me this until I was ready to sign the enrollment agreement.
If you don't mind paying for your whole program out of pocket (I THINK it was like $10,000 for all of it, plus you have to be CPR certified and STNA which are NOT included in the tuition), then this program is a good one. You can get in quick, no waiting lists, etc., and the cost is reasonable. There's just no way I can do it without some kind of aid, be it loans and/or grants. They are really nice, though, so you might give them a call and see if the aid status has changed. I am attending a different school and haven't contacted them any further.
